In terms of the handsets in its lineup that will get the jump to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, Taiwanese smartphone and tablet manufacturer HTC has already announced a while back that the HTC EVO 3D will get upgraded to the latest version of the Google mobile operating system. Sad to say, the manufacturer has yet to provide details as to when exactly can we expect the handset to get its tasty treat of Ice Cream Sandwich for that matter.

Our smartphone-crazed brethren who rock an HTC EVO 3D for their mobile weapon of choice can only be content with using leaked ICS ROMs for the handset just to get a feel of how the latest Android version will look and feel on the device. However, due to the unique camera library for the handset, developers can only come up with semi-functional ICS ROMs for the HTC EVO 3D, much to the frustration of users of the handset.
However, there are rumors that an official Ice Cream Sandwich update for the HTC EVO 3D cannot be far behind because an official ICS ROM for the handset has recently leaked and managed to find its way to the internet. Of all sources, the official ICS ROM is said to have leaked from Virgin Mobile and the hardworking developers of Team Virtuous over at RootzWiki managed to get their hands on the leaked ICS build. If you are feeling a bit adventurous today, you might want to try the product of their labor and flash the leaked ICS build onto your HTC EVO 3D.
Early adopters of the leaked ICS build for the HTC EVO 3D attest to the fact that most of the basic essentials such as phone calls, data, Wi-Fi and the like are already working but there are still some wrinkles that need to be ironed out such as working 4G and camera. However, with this ICS build for the HTC EVO 3D already out in the open, we can expect the hardworking fellows in the developer community to work on this over the weekend which means this could be the start of a many good things for the handset. If you’d rather play it safe and decided to wait for the official ICS update for the handset, you can just go through the specs sheet of the HTC EVO 3D below instead.
Under the hood, the HTC EVO 3D sports a QualComm MSM8660 SnapDragon chipset to power its operation while its dual-core 1.2 GHz Scorpion processor is complemented by a full gigabyte of RAM to deliver the computing power needed by the handset. Storage space on the handset comes up to a meager 1 GB of internal memory but this can be beefed up to as much as 32 GB so this shouldn’t be an issue really. The display of the HTC EVO 3D is a 3D-capable 4.3-inch LCD panel with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels while its camera department equips the handset with a rear-facing 5MP autofocus shooter and front-facing 1.3MP webcam.
